Despite only being at the London premiere of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel last night to support her husband Ol Parker, who wrote the screenplay of the film, it’s safe to say that Thandie Newton pretty much stole the show on the red carpet.
Thanks to Beyonce and Jay-Z’s little baby girl Blue Ivy Carter, the colour’s popularity has undoubtedly sky-rocketed. But, whatever the gorgeous Thandie Newton’s reason for opting to wear this electric blue one-shouldered Stella McCartney Resort 2012 dress was, it was definitely a great choice.
Thandie has excelled at the ‘understated elegance’ look for as long as we can remember, often managing to outshine celebs in the brightest and most extravagant of frocks with the simplest of looks, but she’s proved that she can also rock the red carpet in a bold, daring number too. She’s certainly no wallflower, that’s for sure.
Ms Newton teamed her attention-grabbing dress with some nude pumps, a chic up-do and cute earrings, letting the dress – and of course, her beauty – do all the talking. What a pro!
